Wow, what a pie! This was my first time baking an apple pie and I won't look for another recipe. I was supposed to carry a dessert for pastor appreciation dinner at Church. This came together very quickly, but I was nervous about no added sugar. My husband and I decided to "taste-test" it and make sure it would be ok to serve. After the first piece my husband decided it was HIS pie and it wasn't going anywhere. Luckily I had made another dessert to carry. I did use a deep dish pie plate and it filled it to the brim-I used Granny Smith apples and they were large. The apple juice concentrate and cornstarch mixture thickened quickly-next time I'll know what to expect. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
Very good! the apple juice was different and worked nicely. I made it and froze it for Thanksgiving dinner. To make things easier for dinner I cut and plated it just after taking it out of the freezer, it worked well. The pie was enjoyed by all thanks for posting.
